Boca Raton property owners, rev your lawn mowers. The allowed length of grass — and other untended vegetation — just got shorter.
    The City Council approved an ordinance in February that reduced the permitted maximum height of untended vegetation by 4 inches, dropping it from 12 inches to 8.
    The ordinance is aimed mostly at vacant lots and houses in foreclosure, said Deputy City Manager George Brown. “The key word is ‘untended,’ ” he noted.
    “Untended vegetation” refers to grass, weeds, underbrush or any dense growth of trees, vines or other vegetation.
